Looking deeper into the US and its place in the world.

We live in a world run through with Fault Lines.

As the global economy implodes, and people around the world feel the financial shockwave, as more US troops pour into Afghanistan, as Israel tightens its stranglehold on the Palestinians - all eyes are on the US.

Al Jazeera's eyes are there too: Fault Lines will take you below the surface, where opposing forces collide. Every fortnight, Avi Lewis and Josh Rushing will examine those conflicts - both in the US and abroad.

From the heart of a superpower in crisis, Fault Lines digs deeper into what is driving the big stories of the day.

At the same time, it opens a window on to the stories that have been neglected by mainstream news, but which still have much to teach us about the way the world works today.

We will bring you the stories of the street too, putting a face to those who are falling through the cracks, and giving a platform to those who are fighting back.

Fault Lines are the lines of responsibility for the crises the world faces. Our task is to follow them, and to ask the tough questions of those at fault.
